1 - In the 2010 edition of The Military Balance, the Syrian Navy was said to have 2 Petya II class vessels. In the 2011, it was said to have 2 Petya III class ships. This suggests that these were the same and the existing Petya IIs were upgraded to Petya III standard.

2 - It is not clear why the Sonya class ship and the undescribed training vessel were not listed in the 2010 edition of The Military Balance.

3 - The SIPRI Trade Register suggests that these Chinese missiles came via Iran, and may be referred to by the Iranian name Noor.

4 - The Syrian navy does not appear to have suffered misfortunes from the civil war. The post-war fortunes of the Navy are highly uncertain, as the fleet largely consists of elderly units of limited utility.
